Hello Crafty Friends,
Welcome back to Carson's Creations and thanks for stopping by today. I appreciate you visiting and seeing what is new.
We went to Animal Kingdom for a few hours yesterday morning and really enjoyed seeing all the animals on the safari tour. Then my daughter and I had to run a couple errands once we returned to town. Our shopping trip was very productive...we found some Webkinz stuffed animals at Michaels for her HOSA Cancer Kits (she is filling bags for Shands pediatric oncology unit as a Senior project) for a really good deal ($1.50 each, so we bought 20). And, I finally found another Tim Holtz ink case (it was sold out in numerous stores). After that trip...I really was in a loving mood!
I wanted to use my Tim Holtz distress inks (dusty concord, seedless preserves, milled lavender, and picked raspberry) and this week's sketch from My Favorite Things. The watercolor paper was cut with Blueprint 13 to get the stitched edge.
Here is this week's sketch...
I used my Cuttlebug (sometimes this is so much easier than using an electronic die-cutting machine!) to cut the banner from Blueprint 12, had a felt heart in my stash, and the Grape Fizz twine is by Trendy Twine. I used double-sided tape on the backside of the heart so the twine would stay in place. When I flipped it over it looked like a flower rather than a random swirl.
I used Recollections raspberry tinsel embossing powder (picked it up at Michaels during our shopping trip ~ 50% off) for the sentiment. The sentiment is from MFT stamp set called Right on Target (part of the bundle I bought after returning a Christmas present).
Thanks again for stopping by!
Can't wait to see what you are making!
